He left his bones in a boat under the stars and came back. The war ended years ago, but he remains.
He can move freely now, between people and dwellings and in the long memories of places.
Time brings him to Morgul Vale. The dread is gone, but there is desolation and silence and the river runs sluggishly, edged with yellow foam.
But he can still uncover fragments of another age...
Moonlight on white walls...
Fish with pink gills and silver fins in clear water, and winds that break the stagnant air with smells of snow and rain on stone.
